(CNN)Pulling for a prosecutor. Battling in the bathroom. Beating the backlash. It's Tuesday, and here are the 5 things you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door.

1. Campaign 2016

Donald Trump's upped the ante against Hillary Clinton. He wants a special prosecutor to investigate her, specifically the coziness between the State Department when she was secretary of state and the Clinton Foundation. Expect to hear about even more Clinton emails and other documents, now that State's been ordered to review and release almost 15,000 documents between her and her top aides.

    2. Bathroom battles

    A federal judge in Texas has issued a nationwide injunction that stops federal agencies from punishing school districts that won't follow the administration's guidance on transgender bathroom use. The administration's position is that under Title IX, if you're a school getting federal $$, you can't discriminate based on a student's transgender status.

    3. S.C. church shooting

    New court documents show accused Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof wrote two manifestos -- one before he killed nine people at Emanuel AME Church and another in jail -- and they lay out a list of churches and his "selection of victims." The documents say he wanted to attack during Bible study because it would cause the most outrage.

    4. North Korea

    North Korea's at it again. This time the North's threatening the annual joint military exercises between the US and South Korea. If things get out of hand or too aggressive (in the North's eyes), it promises a "pre-emptive nuclear strike." The North's pretty ticked off about a lot of things lately, including the recent defection of the highest-ranking North Korean official in decades.

    5. Burkini

    It's the backlash to the backlash. The woman who created the burkini said sales are up 90% ever since some French beaches banned the full-length swimsuit worn by some Muslim women. And an Algerian businessman is fighting back with his checkbook -- paying the fines of those who do.
